HDL-Cholesterol Levels in Gouty Patients
Lipoprotein abnormalities are common in gout. The most frequent is hypertriglyceridemia, which has been reported in three-quarters of patients with primary gout (1, 2). This alteration may or may not be related to obesity, alcohol consumption, and glucose intolerance (3). Patients with gout secondary to lead nephropathy do not have hypertriglyceridemia (4).
